Someone needs to do a Toxic Rain... Chocolate Rain parody.
....

When you pour more than a million gallons of toxic chemical dispersants on top of an oil spill, it doesn’t just disappear. In this case, it moves to the atmosphere, where it will travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles from the site of the BP oil spill, in the form of toxic rain.

BP’s oil spill-fighting dispersant of choice is Corexit 9500 (http://www.valdezlink.com/evos/others.htm). It has been banned in Europe for good reason. Corexit 9500 is one of the most environmentally enduring, toxic chemical dispersants ever created to battle an oil spill. Add to that the millions of gallons of oil that have been burned, releasing even more toxins into the atmosphere, and you have a recipe for something much worse than acid rain.

The European Union Times (http://current.com/10su04c)reports "A dire report prepared for President Medvedev by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources is warning today that the British Petroleum (BP) oil and gas leak in the Gulf of Mexico is about to become the worst environmental catastrophe in all of human history threatening the entire eastern half of the North American continent with “total destruction”.

The reports adds, "Russian scientists are basing their apocalyptic destruction assessment due to BP’s use of millions of gallons of the chemical dispersal agent known as Corexit 9500 which is being pumped directly into the leak of this wellhead over a mile under the Gulf of Mexico waters and designed, this report says, to keep hidden from the American public the full, and tragic, extent of this leak that is now estimated to be over 2.9 million gallons a day."

Oil in the environment is toxic at 11 PPM (parts per million). Corexit 9500 is toxic at only 2.61 PPM. But Corexit 9500 has another precarious characteristic; it’s reaction to warm water.

As the water in the Gulf of Mexico heats up, Corexit 9500 goes through a molecular transition. It changes from a liquid to a gas, which is readily absorbed by clouds and released as toxic rain. The chemical-laden rain then falls on crops, reservoirs, animals and of course, people.

It is futile to believe that we can keep ‘Corexit rain’ from occurring since it has already been released and the molecular transformation has begun. We have set off an unprecedented chain of events in nature that we cannot control.

By releasing Pandora’s well from the depths and allowing it bleed into the sea the unimaginable becomes material.

Yet unlike a bad dream, we will not wake up from this nightmare and find it gone. The BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill will be touching millions of earth’s life forms for uncountable years.

Un-funny inside joke: a certain group of my friends and I refer to the soft drink Sierra Mist as "Nevada Rain," said every time in deep-voiced parody of "Chocolate Rain."

Yes, I'm sure you came up with this theory on your own, and now this feels like deja vu now that someone else has written out your thoughts.

If all of this is accurate... which we will never know until Donger comes in... heh.... but, this could DEVASTATE crops this year and the next several years...

This would make most all food MORE toxic to eat... lots of famine and shit.

That just looks like a dirty street in a trailer park or something. It doesn't make sense that it would be raining oil, yet... not until a Hurricane comes... then it's gonna be unreal.

What is going to happen if that rain reaches Iowa and Nebraska and the corn field, what about Carolina and the tobacco?

Who was it thinking I was retarded because I said this would be one of the worse man made disasters???

We should probably go ahead and let it play out before we start saying who is and isn't retarded.
